Delete with Adobe Illustrator

Adobe Illustrator is not really a program designed for clearing watermarks since it’s a vector graphics editor. However, you can use it to delete watermark in PDF. Just export your document, select the watermark image or text, click “delete”, and re-save as a PDF file.

Keep in mind that you can’t remove watermarks with this software if the file is password-protected. You’ll have to use a PDF password-remover tool before using Adobe Illustrator to erase a watermark.
